Kathleen Jan Gilleland

Kathy was born October 5, 1956 in Long Beach, California.

Her parents were Cecil Owen Gilleland and Helen Marie Woodworth. She was the only child.

Kathy went to Noti Grade School (1961 to 1966), Fern Ridge Junior High (1966-1969) and graduated from Elmira High school in June of 1974.

Jerald and Kathleen first met through Elmira Junior Grange when they were both about 5 years old. Kathy did not associate with Jerry much other than through Grange activities. She did go to the Freshman year homecoming dance with Jerry held at the high school but that was it. She also spent a couple of high school years summers with the Fox family, mostly with Celia and Kathy during bean picking season. Quite often there would either be picnics at the Fox household in the back yard or picnics at the Gillelands at the "summer house" down by the Long Tom River. Eventually through the course of dating other people, Jerry and Kathy realized that they enjoyed each others company tremendously and wanted to spend their lives as husband and wife to each other.

Kathy married Jerald John Fox on October 23, 1976 in Noti, Oregon and has two children: Emmalee Colleen (January 6, 1981 to May 17, 2007), and Living Daughter (1988 to current).

Kathy's is a "hardware clerk" having worked at the Kelley's True Value in Veneta for almost 30 years.
